“San Diego Zoo and the Museum of Man”
Reviewed October 20, 2011

This is the top champion of zoos. There is something for everyone here.

The museum has mummies which I am very interested in and I enjoyed the exhibit.

“Lovely park and museums”
Reviewed October 20, 2011

The park is well laid out and clean. The science and space museum is great for young kids but a little disappointing for older children and adults.

“old town trolley tours”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

we visitied the world famour San Diago Zoo which is located in this park, by hopping off this bus. All the wonderful museums, and buildings are closed on Monday, so we didn't get to explore all that is offered there. The trees and all the greenery are beautiful

“Walk in the park”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

Nice park to walk and bring the kids to play, I spent a brief time here while on business and it was a good relax moment for myself.
